of obamacare. just like right before the independence holiday they tried to hide the one-year business mandate. president obama and others have tried to hide what they knew about the website problems. they continue to try to hide problems on the back end of the website that is delivering information to insurers. they have tried to hide the security problems that exist with the website. the president and house democrats tried to hide for years that millions of americans would lose the coverage they like. the president house democrats tried to hide for years that many americans will lose access to doctors, pediatricians, and even hospitals they chose. you have to ask what else are they hiding? obamacare is plagued with problems and every american deserving relief from it. this administration has to come clean and explain why and how americans are impacted by this law. this isn't helping americans. it is harming those people who need help the most right now. >> welcome back. >> so part of the republican leadership is they come out talking about jobs and economy but immediate transition to the pro

to reach president obama's one-year, seven million people signup goal. seven million people heretofore had not had health insurance or maybe they got kicked off of their health insurance plan because the promise of if you like your health plan you can keep it has not been kept. many people, unfortunately, very many people, something like five million, have already been notified that they're not going to be able to keep their health care insurance even though they like it. many health insurance professionals and public officials have gone public. they have reported that the site isn't anywhere near ready for primetime, and as much as 40%, as i said earlier, of the site has yet to be built. my hometown newspaper in atlanta, georgia, "the atlanta journal constitution," included a headline today, and i quote, new and improved? not so much, some georgians find, end quote. and they went on to highlight three of the most glaring examples. i'm going to give -- colleagues, i'm going to give you a couple of the examples in the interest of time. alforetta, georgia, shopping online, he's faced roadblo

by 9 points. and since president obama carried women voters by 11 points in last year's presidential election, since then just 14% of women say the republican party has moved closer to their perspective. now, they're not doing much to change their policy agenda which is actually most responsible for the gap in women voters. instead, republicans keep trying to repackage, repurpose themselves and shocker, they're doing it badly. last year there was this last-minute move by house republicans to name representative candace miller to chair the house administration committee which came after weeks of criticism of boehner for filling every one of the committee chair posts with white men. and more recently, this amazing photo from the government shutdown that shows eight white men ready to make a deal. tweeted by house majority leader eric cantor behind the hashtag, fairnessforall. joining me now is jess mcintosh from the political action committee. how successful do you envision this latest seminar? are they contracting with you or anyone else to actually teach the acceptable far? >> you me

been delays in various mandates of obama care. further we see various funds as reported by "the washington post" earlier in the year that may have been part of prevention have been moved to help other parts of obama care. so what this judiciary committee hearing is about is is there a breach that the president, this president or future presidents can't by executive order say can congress pass the law, here's the law, here's the deadline, here's the funding issues but we're going to delay it or change it. you know, i remember at the end of last year or at the beginning of the government shutdown that the extreme republicans offered the president a delay but he didn't take the delay. that would have been sanctioned by congress. i think this hearing is not only crucially important, i think it comes at a time where there is so much fuzziness as to the original simplicity of the constitution on checks and balances. remember, it wasn't supposed to be about writing checks, it was supposed to be about check one branch versus the other. so i'm definitely going to give you updates on how
mr. obama's first trip to south africa as president in june of this year, serious consideration was given to a meeting with mandela at the hospital, but even then, he was far too frail and mr. obama huddled instead with the family inside this compound. then brought him to the prison. mr. obama referred to mandela by his south african name of endearment. madiba. >> madiba's words give us a compass in a sea of change. >> with mandela's passing, the president said others must now hold his moral compass. >> it falls to us as best we can to form the example that he set. to make decisions guided not by hate, but by love. never discount the difference that one person can make, to strive for a future worthy of his sacrifice. >> president obama will travel to south africa for services for mandela and is expected to be one of many world leaders asked to eulogize the political prisoner who became president. >> colin powell witnessed an historic moment when mandela was sworn in. mandela's leadership that day set his country on a path to unity and inspired the world. the former secretary of

did you find out? >> after a bitter pill story last year, that story is followed up. he'll write a monthly column about implementing obama care. basically, the good thing, one of the gas things about obama care it actually sets some new laws saying you can't, hospital can't overcharge the way it did before and expect to have that nonprofit status they enjoy. what was discovered is 2 1/2 years after they wrote through they haven't written regulations that would for the hospitals to start charging them or force hospitals to stop going after poor or indy against or underinsured folks. it's a good story. the obama administration can't get the little things right. some of these practices and policies would start. >> is the stop of overcharge is part of america spend sewing much of its gdp spent on health care or is it a separate issue. >> it's one of the reasons we do spend so much on health care. you get into a minor scrape or accident you go to hospital and easily rack up $10 or $25,000 worth of charges in a few hours. some of those charges are just completely, you know, unreal. wha
department planning to sell the last of its stock in gm by the end of the year. so interesting to me. do you think this proves what was first president bush and then president obama's bailout worked, austan? >> in a way, it did. we were facing the auto industry's big three at that time because of financial system was shutdown. i don't think we should use that as an aspiration. rather than these are good investments the government should be engaged in. you see manufacturing coming back. some of that is based on cost and productivity relatively shifting to the u.s. of the more attractive place to do business. some of it is we had a lot of pent up demand. people have been driving the same car as long as they can drive it until the fenders fell off. you have to eventually get new cars. >> that is so true. kevin and austan, thank you so much. >>> the american auto industry leaving the bailout in the mirror and thriving. we talked about the numbers. let's check out the flash. this is the new 2015 mustang revealed at the 50th birthday party. sleeker profile and more power and better gas mileage and
years working in this field. president obama has called for a $10 minimum wage hike. but, you know, given the gridlock in washington, the states are starting to act. california approved a $10 minimum wage hike and no sooner had that been inked than a consebive placed it on the ballot to go to $12. the high cost cities are pushing for even higher wages. voters in sea-tac, washington, approved a $15 wage. now cities like chicago and new york are calling for wages of similar levels. i think what's driving this is what president obama called the defining challenge of our time in this economics talk yesterday. the fact is, the restaurant industry noted that the majority of the jobs our economy is creating are in these low payment fields like restaurant and retail. these aren't team jobs if they ever were. now tens of millions of adult americans spend their time cycling through these careers, these jobs. at $9 an hour, they're not sustainable. so what the fast food workers are calling for is a raise in pay and sit down with the industry for negotiationing a plan to transition to a higher
agreement signed a year to have to a year and half ago. was there discussion today with president obama on how that's going and whether anything should change with the? >> yes. we came to the conclusion that it's working quite well. the u.s. is exporting more to colombia and vice versa. there are specific issues where we have mutual, not complaints but mutual efforts and obstacles to overcome. they mentioned something with the labor, some issues with the labor situation in colombia. we addressed those issues very clearly on what we are doing their. i wanted the u.s. to be more helpful in lifting obstacles that would allow us our example to export our avocados to the u.s.. i was given in the white house a delicious salad and the first plate in the lunch and there was an avocado. i said this is not a colombian avocado because we have restrictions. we need those restrictions to be lifted. those types of items are the ones that we shared but in general we are very happy with the way it is performing performing. >> there has been concern about the protection of workers under the free trade a
obama supporter a little bit like oil and water there. but the company itself in my mind one of these names that has been tremendous for us this year. we got out but now i'm looking at it as a long idea. under pressure for a couple of things. the fbi raided them or something like that, one of these things i think doesn't matter. the exotic woods. and said he went short in the stock goes down like $5 a day. i'm not impressed by this, guys. just a company growing phenomenally. without these if you look at the last four quarters, they beat the street every time, by smaller amounts. the next five years going to grow faster than the last five years. they have been absolutely phenomenal. one of these names i like a lot on weakness. the shorts have gathered up on this name like to have with lots of the momentum names which have not done that's great. connell: you bring it to us because you did not think it would be welcomed on "varney & company"? charles: i would not mention it on "varney & company," no. dagen: you don't invest on the politics of a company. charles: it is a rarity.

? >> they do not like this at all. the obama administration, however, may like it, i think. president obama has already indicated that he will be proposal certain reforms to these processes and has a review panel going over them with a report due by the end of the year. so it's possible some of these ideas will line up with president obama's own reforms which may be resisted by his intelligence community. >> when it's resisted by the intelligence community, i guess that takes us to whatever the next crisis is, whoever wants to predict that. but does this drift away given the next security crisis for the nation? >> no question that if there were another attack, and these practices were faulted, that would be a disaster. and all efforts to reform them would then stop. and what this letter essentially is arguing is that the economic benefits to the u.s. economy and to these companies outweigh the reduction in risk that arises from these surveillance practices. that's a very controversial point. they're good arguments on both sides of it. and it is in a way the crux of the matter. >> what i found i
. they have to verify what you are eligible for and subsidies and married and income last year. and vital stats and what you put on the tax return, insurance companies need to verify that and those forced to do it through the obama website and healthcare.gov, are not able to do. that we hear it is not working cleanly. and as time ticks by. insurance companies are looking for our tech people to come in and solve the problem. >> they are in the business to make money. eligibility verikdz. and the phrase you will hear about. that is still not happening, right? >> no, it is enormous. that's how they price the p and get you over the finish line and look at the fixes and blue cross blue shield where they hired temporary people to come back and the information was filled incorrectly in the field. and now places like florida and even reports in connecticut, where they are saying, maybe we need to interact with the state's website to it verify the information. and maybe we need to hire an outside vendor to verify the information without relying on the federal website. >> say norred? >> florida, oh
obama to have andreas schleicher neck dote sold us a lamp and instead now they are saying well look at this great paperweight. >> here is the issue, judy, is that republicans still, 100 years into this debate still haven't offered their plan, speaker boehner today just kind of was flippant yeah we will see if we offer our own plan, yet obama has had problems in the rollout but wha what the plan os in the rollout is far superior to going back to the type of discrimination the insurance companies participated in before, the gender discrimination paying more for healthcare coverage, just because you are a woman, so, you know, they can argue for the status quo, we will argue for the success of obamacare and things will play out next year. >> woodruff: ron, is it enough for republicans to criticize, which they clearly are doing or do they need to come up with an alternative on their own. >> absolutely, republicans were shut out of the process of developing obamacare, and they need to talk about the law, they need to talk about the problems in the law because that that is what it is, yes,
to nowhere, a road that we've been on, stuck on for 30 years? remember in june in 2009, president obama offered the iranians a new beginning based on mutual respects, based on mutual interests, and that laid behind the grievances of the past. that approach, unfortunately, caught the iranians off guard you.because what he had done wao discredit decades of anti-american rhetoric, a staple of the diet to tehran. how does one thing as an enemy someone who sins you creating, who quotes the poet, and he speaks of mutual respect? something that the iranians have always said they wanted. the response to the president's outreach and offer was to say the least disappointing. it was as though the iranians saw him not as an enemy, but as something more dangerous, as a rival. the word they used was -- now, as our iranian friends know it means co-wife. [laughter] something more dangerous, more attractive and younger. and, therefore, something you fear more than the enemy. now, it's been five years since that original outreach. and, finally, these efforts, it looks like these efforts are getting a res
know, it sounds a little corn any. that is what the american dream is about. president obama told the country in his state of the union this year it is our generation's task to reignite the true engine in america's economic growth. a rising, thriving middle class. i cannot agree more. the country has been through a lot. but i'm grateful that we have a president who, in every decision he's faced, on the budget battle, long fought battles, economic growth policies, and even health care he has been focused on expanding opportunity for all americans. and i think it's in part because he's thinking of the kids who need that fair shot to ensure they reach their potential. he knows we're all better off when they do. and for that, i'm very grateful as well. ladies and gentlemen, it is my great, great privilege to introduce to you, the president of the united states. ♪ [cheering and applause] ♪ [cheering and applause] >> thank you! thank you! thank you, everybody. thank you so much. thank you! thank you, everybody. please, please, have a seat. thank you so much. well, thank you, neera f
it is right. who --tion would be -- president obama when he severed -- when hed look for sat for 20 years and listen to reverend wright? guest: you know, i'm not quite sure how to answer that question. that there is a lot of variation between the states and the federal systems, and that is really one of the things that we found was that there is so much of a difference between a federal standards and the states, and the states really have so much variation between them. some of them -- the rules are state, soto the you have the separation of powers, you have the state rights. they would have a really unique form and unique standards. i could give examples of your interested. host: sure. guest: in new jersey, they asked the justices to discuss if they own any property in atlantic city. atlantic city geographically the tiny part of new jersey. i guess this came from interest in making sure there were not corruptive influences and gambling. in north carolina, they asked for any -- if anyone who ifointed the judge gave -- the judge gave any money to that person who a point to them, which is a
particularly because of the shutdown and how that hurt republicans. and it's an election year in 2014, republicans want to talk about obama care, they want to talk about other issues. they think they can beat up on obama and the democrats and don't want to get bogged down by shutdowns and debt limit fights. there's no reason to think stocks are too high because washington's going to kill everything. >> and maybe it was set so low because it was on the floor. >> you can't go much lower than they are. they can clear the bar for expectations which is no shut down. and maybe get the approval ratings in the 10% range, double digits at some point. >> one of the things we've been watching is what the fed's going to do next. how much do you think the fed has been responsible for this. and if the tapering begins, is that really something that takes the steam out of the market? not if it's just based on valuations like you've been talking. >> i have not been of the view that fed-driven liquidity is the sole support under the market. we touched on it a few minutes ago, there are many traditional
/frank coming up. we have, obviously, obama care. is that going to possibly be a hindrance to growth and expansion next year or is it just going to be a stimulus for your line of work? >> you know, i don't know if it will be a stimulus for our line of work. but for the companies we work with, aca hasn't impacted them that much. they have more administrative costs, slightly, but it really hasn't impacted them that much because they all have 200 or more employees. dodd/frank, it's been a work in process for a long time. i don't know if there's anything necessarily today that's going to affect it. i think the one thing, the headwind is, potential more regulation as well. >> that's always going to be the case. >> always. >> when have you ever said, there's not enough regulation out there? what is your biggest headwind? >> our biggest headwind, i think, is the government shutdown potential, the debt ceiling issue. frankly, we need comprehensive tax legislation. and if we got that, i think it would make us all more competitive. certainly help our business, i'm sure. but those two or three
